The Ontario Municipal Knowledge Network improves municipal service delivery by enabling municipal managers throughout Ontario to share information and learn from each other’s ideas and successes. The Municipal Knowledge Network is web-based to maximize accessibility. The Network features beneficial practices that are transferable from one municipality to another.  It features beneficial practices that are relevant to the entire spectrum of Ontario municipalities – large and small, urban and rural, in every part of the province.  

Many of our featured practices have been verified by Municipal Performance Measurement Program (MPMP) data. Across Ontario, municipal managers are using its practices to re-engineer and improve roads, public transit, waste management, and water and wastewater services.  At a time when municipalities face tremendous budget pressures, the network documents opportunities to maximize the benefit of municipal tax dollars. The Municipal Knowledge Network is a joint initiative between the Ontario Government and the Association of Municipalities of Ontario.
